Formulation Versatility and Variety

Versatile, flexible and adaptable, our phenolic formaldehyde resins can take on any job—binding, laminating, modifying, or adhering—and come in a variety of forms such as phenolic novolac, resole, powder resin solutions and water-based solutions. The proven structural performance and application flexibility of phenolics make them a manufacturing standard across a wide range of industries. Momentive can adapt characteristics such as reactivity, moisture content, molecular weight, pH, flow and lubricity to your application needs, bringing you a virtually endless number of formulations that help take your products to the next level.

Our urea formaldehyde resins, used mainly for non-structural bonding applications in the wood products industry, are a cost-effective and proven performer. Melamine formaldehyde is used extensively in decorative laminates installed in thousands of products from countertops to laminate flooring. You'll also find them used as modifiers in other materials, such as textiles, tires, paper, fertilizers, glass and metals.
